Taking the stage at a Galt House where he worked as a bell hop while in college, Kentucky native and US EPA Administrator Scott Pruitt wasted no time telling the audience that the Trump administration was about to shed baggage left behind by the Obama Administration’s EPA. “Waters of the US” is likely the biggest reason why some agriculture groups were critical of the Obama Administration. The EPA’s regulation of the legislation that defined water sources on private property had been a focal point during last year’s elections. Friday there were cheers when Administrator Scott Pruitt promised that change is months away. He accused the former administration of “over-reach” in its defining of “WOTUS” and said a replacement should be in place by in the middle of next year.
